Fantastic, love the synth that starts things off, classic sounds and great execution, this is the kind of track I want to listen to while driving aimlessly.

I love that!! Hope we get tondeuse around aimlessly soon enough again (here in Belgium we cannot do that anymore for the time being)

Yes, it was made with an actual 808, the rest is just soft synths. Kind of a shame, but I have drum and bass machines galore, but no real good  hardware synths ... somehow I have always been intrigued by the Korg MS 20, also cause it looks great, but then it also seems limited ... so I am always pondering ... Or maybe I am just cheap smile))

Classic tones!  And the MS20 is a cool synth.  It's not really limited if you dig into it.  Great tones available.

Gotta love that authentic 808 sound. This makes me wish I could breakdance smile  The MS20 synths in the middle sound extra thick too.  Nice work!
